Hello Friends and Followers,
I know I’ve pretty much fallen off the internet without many or any updates. To be honest, I might not even be updating now if it weren’t for how my day went which I feel is…an apt condensing of the way the first four months of this year has gone. I started writing this to vent for myself before I realized that I’m not the only person I’m venting for and it’s less that I WANT people to know how my day went and more that I NEED them too. Certain things just seem too important not to share.
Let me begin by saying that back in February I took a cashier job at my local supermarket. Said supermarket is less local and more of a monopoly supermarket superpower with hundreds of employees in just one store and even though I live in a poor community, I also live in a tourist town. I took a job I knew I didn’t want and would have difficulty working because I needed to pay rent (Which I was under the impression that I would be able to do). And I’ve been telling myself that it’s only temporary and that I can stick it out. Well, it is only temporary but whether it comes to my leaving first or my getting fired is up in the air. I knew that I would have a hard time keeping this job on my first day, not because of my capabilities, but because of the completely inappropriate and abusive treatment of an adolescent, mentally unsound shoplifter that I was too afraid to defend.
Over the last two months, I’ve kept my mouth shut for a number of injustices, things that very wrong customers get to be right about because they are shopping and god dammit if I’m not
aiming to please. But today for some reason I wasn’t having it.
